What is Egg Rolls?

A popular appetizer or main course in Chinese cuisine, egg rolls are made by wrapping a mixture of cooked vegetables, usually, cabbage, in a thin pastry wrapper and then frying. The wrapper is typically made from flour, water, and eggs, and can be bought pre-made from most supermarkets.

The most common vegetables used in egg rolls are cabbage, carrots and mushrooms, but many other ingredients can be added depending on your preference. Some popular additions include shrimp, chicken, beef, or pork.

Egg rolls can be served either cold or hot, and are a great appetizer for parties or as a main course for lunch or dinner.

Spring Roll vs Egg Roll

There are many types of egg rolls, but the most common is the Spring Roll and the Egg Roll. The Spring Roll is a wrapper made of thin rice paper filled with vegetables and sometimes meat. The Egg Roll is a wrapper made of flour dough filled with vegetables and meat. They are both fried, but the Spring Roll is usually served cold or at room temperature, while the Egg Roll is usually served warm.

Which Egg Roll Wrappers Are Best?

There are a few different types of egg roll wrappers on the market, but my personal favorite is the Wonton Wrapper. They are light and crispy, and they don’t get soggy when you fill them with wet ingredients.

What type of shrimp should be used in this recipe?

There are many different types of shrimp that can be used in this recipe, but the most common type is the raw shrimp. Other types of shrimp that can be used include cooked shrimp, peeled and deveined shrimp, and frozen shrimp.
